D’Banj: It’s Sad I’m Not Married Yet
Kokomaster, Dapo Oyebanjo popularly known as D’banj has explained why he has not been able to tie nuptial-knot with any of the ladies he has dated.
The No Long Thing crooner has been linked with so many ladies, including actress Genevieve Nnaji; Jennifer Obayuwana, daughter of Polo boss, John Obayuwana; Adama Ndimi, daughter of billionaire Mohammed Idimi, and South African diva Bonang Matheba.
However, none of them has been able to pin down the Mo bo lowo won singer. According to the self-acclaim ‘White Lion’, there were some goals he set for himself while growing up, and at 35 he has accomplished almost all except one. “Sadly, I have not accomplished the primary goals.
The main one is marriage. By now, I thought I would have been married. I had always thought I would have a child before the age of 30. “That fantasy did not become a reality because I wanted to strengthen my brand; I wanted to be sure that I was on the right path career-wise because as a kid, you need to crawl before you can walk and eventually run.
I wanted to be sure I surpass all boundaries and reach a certain stage where I can easily balance my work and family. That is the main reason why I am not married.”
Speaking about his achievements, which he said had surpassed his widest imaginations. “Apart from marriage, one other thing I desire to have is the Grammy, but that is already in the pipeline and it would be acquired soon.
I didn’t know I would meet Kanye West while I was dreaming big as a child. But I dreamt that I would go places and people would hear my song all over the world. “I also dreamt that Caucasians would dance to my music; I dreamt I would top music charts across the world and all that has happened.
I have dreamt of performing in front of thousands of people on a global stage and I have achieved that. For all these I am grateful to God,” he added.
